I'm not really begrudging them for wanting to earn more money. They've certainly earned it with years of hard work and determination, and just flat out being more physically gifted than most of us. Everybody wants to earn more money. I would be ecstatic if I could form a union at my workplace and bargain for more money and better benefits. That doesn't mean I'm going to ask for a higher pay every chance I get even when the business is losing money. Its just not realistic.
